Ohio State has received it’s first verbal from a Tight End for the 2011 class, as Florida standout Jeff Heuerman has joined the Buckeyes one day following his visit to the spring game.
The 6′ 5″ 235 pound Heuerman held offers from Boston College, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Wisconsin, and had visited Michigan prior to coming to Columbus. A “legacy” who was thought to be a lock for the Wolverines (dad played basketball in Ann Arbor), Jeff knew the moment he got home this weekend what his decision would be.
“When I got off (Ohio State’s) campus, I just knew I wanted to be a Buckeye. There’s really no sense waiting. When you know something you know it, so I went ahead and pulled the trigger.”
Jeff plays at Barron Collier High in Naples Florida, and seems to be pretty well connected with OSU verbal Jeremy Cash.
Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Mr. Heuerman!
